I will never tell you what I know
about why or how curiosity killed the cat
My lips are sealed tight shut so
you’ll never discover
the secret of how my mother
laid poison disguised as a mouse.
The cat wasn’t about
to look gift-horse in mouth
so squeezed eyes to a slit
and pounced upon it,
looking round for admiring applause
before turning up his paws.
And if you believe that, you’ll believe anything.
